My name is Dale. I am the recipient of both the Purple Heart and Bronze star, but the true hero in my family's life is 11-year old daughter. She was diagnosed with Epilepsy at the age of 2. Her battle is silent. Her seizures are not always clear to the human eye, and can be as simple as a stare or a blink, but it has had a significant impact on her learning and causes significant delays. She struggles at school, but we are constantly getting calls and notes sent home about how hard she works and how she is always helping others. She gives her all in whatever she does. Despite her disability, she remains the light of our eyes. I am no longer able to make the trips to Disney World due to trouble walking other long-term injuries, but would love to be able for her to go and enjoy the magic. My wife is the primary caretaker for both my daughter and I, and she deserves a girl's trip with our daughter so that she can spend the entire trip focusing on her and making it extra special. I am therefore requesting Disney World park hopper tickets for her 12th birthday, which is in early April of this year. This would give them a little more freedom to bring back souvenirs and enjoy all that Disney has to offer without the worry of the ticket cost. I would love to be able to reward my small but mighty hero little girl.

Thank You Message from the Hero:
There are not enough words to say how thankful my family and I are for this unforgettable experience! My daughter had the best time, and to see her smile warmed my heart so much. Without donors like you and your support, this would not have been possible. Disney really is the Happiest Place on Earth! Our child will never forget this trip. Vet Tix made us all feel like celebrities with their treatment prior to leaving. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for doing this for us!
- Dale
Disney World for my Daughter who is my HERO.
